VBMS reels in James Fisher
Subsea excavation arm backing cable repairs at several offshore projects
James Fisher Subsea Excavation (JFSE) is providing equipment and personnel to VBMS for cable repair work at several offshore wind farms in Europe.
JFSE has provided its Twin R2000 spread and water jetting system for the work.
It said the Twin R2000 utilises two controllable columns of water for non-contact excavation in shallow water.
The unit excavates at a velocity of up to 10 metres a second, in depths starting from 1.5 metres, producing up to four square metres of water a second, the company said.
JFSE managing director Kenneth Mackie said: “These concurrent projects are a significant award and we are confident our equipment and personnel will once again prove to be the industry leaders in providing mass/controlled flow excavation services – making a real difference to the success of our client’s challenging projects.”
